Different moulds for different bullet styles are designed to cast a certain weight bullet with a certain alloy. I have noticed Lyman rates bullet weight in their moulds for magnum cartridges using linotype and standard bullets with #2 alloy. Where did you get your alloy? Is it certified?

My guess is that your alloy is high in lead content for that mould, but who cares as long as the bullets come out looking good. I have several different moulds from 148 gr to 500 gr. None of them cast to exactly the advertised weight. Don't sweat it..
